|Buffalo Match Results
July 9, 2005
There were enough inquiries about whether a Buffalo Match was going to held at the conclusion of the silhouette match that a trip was made down-range to give the steel bison a fresh coat of paint, comb out the fur on his hide & give the shooters and spotters a ‘presentable’ target to work with.
guessing that folks don’t know how much time it takes to run a buffalo to the
beauty parlor / hair stylist / manicurist.
the time we got back to the firing line, only three entrants remained to accept
the challenge. Yes, it was hot, & yes, we were tired but it is far better to
spend another hour shooting than driving home at the peak of Saturday rush-hour
three-person match was held (advice to potential entrants – with odds like
this, you’ll most likely finish well) and the wind & mirage conditions
experienced during the last relays of the silhouette match seemed to diminish a
three entrants experienced a significant drop in their previously established
elevation sight settings, which made the sight-in period interesting. Once the
zero’s were found, the shooting became a function of when the shot broke &
how much Mother Nature wanted to play with us.
All in all, it was an hour well-spent & I hope to see more of you there, in the future, to savor “The Hill” in the evening.
